I'm totally hooked on Super Hexagon, the new (incredibly difficult) iOS game from independent designer Terry Cavanagh, of VVVVVV fame. Its bite-sized chunks of hellish action make me want to rip my hair out and grin insanely at the same time.
I don't think I'm selling this very well, but trust me: it's a blast.
And one of my favorite things about the game is its pulsating chiptune soundtrack, created by Northern Ireland's own Chipzel (Niamh Houston). It's great stuff; the only problem is that I keep dying before I have a chance to listen to it straight through.
Fortunately, you can grab the three-song soundtrack from Chipzel's Bandcamp page for just over $3 (or more, if you like). Check out the tracks below and see if they strike your fancy.
(Oh, and if you think you're hot stuff: My best time is 77:58 seconds. Bring it.)
